How To Care for your new Carex Evergold Sedge
Carex Evergold Sedge is a moundedgrass-like perennial that is very low maintenance.
Be sure to plant your Carex Evergold in growing zones 5 to 10. This sedge grows well in part sun to full shade and is adaptable to a variety of soils including wet soil. Water deeply once or twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly. This perennial does prefer moist soil, but is more drought tolerant than other sedges. Add 2 to 3 inches of mulch to help the soil retain moisture and protect the roots from extreme temps. Fertilize with a slow release, balanced fertilizer in spring for optimal growth. Prune back your Sedge to about 2 inches if you are in an area where the grass dies back. New growth will emerge in spring. Carex Evergold rarely encounters problems with pests and disease and is deer tolerant.
Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.
Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil. Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.
Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.
Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.
Finish up by mulching around your new plant. Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.
Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
